Think local, look local, hire local!

The mission of the Workforce Pipeline Summit is to strengthen our local workforce and community through alleviating the short- and long-term pipeline shortage. We are committed to identifying, investing in, training, and shining a light on the available and willing hidden talent pool in our community.

Attendees of the summit can expect to join other learners and leaders for a hands-on, productive day of discussion and planning for our preferred future as Michigan residents, employers, employees, and students. They will start the day by gaining a comprehensive understanding of the workforce issues affecting our state with talks by leading voices in business, economic development, education, policy making, and social services. In the afternoon, they will participate in rotating breakout discussions moderated by subject matter experts, and then close out the day with group-generated, sustainable and actionable 2-, 5-, and 10-year Workforce Pipeline Strategic Plans that spell out the vision and commitments for solving the workforce pipeline problem in our community.

Attendees at the Summit will come from all walks of life, including business owners, leaders, and employees; economic development organizations; educators, administrators, and students; policy makers at the local, county, and state level; members of the hidden talent pool, including creatives, the underserved, underprivileged, age 55+, formerly incarcerated, persons with disabilities, and veterans; and social services organizations working with homeless, addiction-recovery, low-income, low-education, dislocated-worker, neurodiverse, and other populations.

The Summit is an opportunity for us as a State to really look into the future, understand the issues, and co-create a long-term plan to ensure we have enough properly skilled workers ready for high-impact growth and sustainability.

By promoting locally owned businesses and employing people from wide swaths of the community, we can realize sustained community growth for the benefit of all.
